MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs placed right-hander Carlos Marmol on the 15-day disabled list because of an injured hamstring.

The Cubs made the move Saturday and called up righty Casey Coleman from Triple-A Iowa.

Marmol was hurt Friday night while pitching during the seventh inning in a game against Milwaukee. He returned to Chicago to have an MRI, which revealed the injury. Marmol is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in 15 games this season.

"He was really sore when he was walking out last night and it seemed to actually be getting worse," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

Coleman was 2-3 with a 3.48 ERA in seven appearances at Iowa, including six starts. He is expected in Milwaukee on Saturday, but not in time for the first pitch against the Brewers.
